    Bioluminescent Kayak Tour of Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon

    Saturday, 9/8/18 7:45 PM - approx. 9:45 PM

    Open to the public, club membership NOT required.

    Payments must be made by August 23rd.

    Join us for an unforgettable evening of kayaking in the bioluminescent glow (a natural phenomenon of glowing blue, alive with activity). The swirling of your hand, every paddle stroke and the rolling wake off of your kayak all glow in the darkness like an under-water laser light show. Fish leave trails, dolphins look like torpedoes, and manatees a slow and graceful submarine.

    For those interested we’ll meet at Dixie Crossroads at 5:30 for dinner (at your own expense). All paddlers will assemble at 7:45 PM at Beacon 42 launch point (subject to change). We’ll be paddling with A Day Away Kayak outfitters. Day Away will have guides there to provide instruction and lead us on our adventure (no experience necessary). We’ll spend about 1½ hours on the water.

     During the warm summer months, the waters of Florida's Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon come alive with Bio-luminescence. Every movement in the water produces light! From the swirl of your paddle or the trail of a speeding school of mullet (which look like hundreds of blue-green underwater bottle rockets), to the ghostly glow of a slow-moving manatee or sting ray, every movement is illumined. The tour lasts 1½ to 2 hours. This tour is appropriate for inexperienced, as well as seasoned, paddlers. A Day Away Kayak Tours provides skilled guides to help beginners have a memorable experience.
